Hi,

I have a list of amino-acid peptides. For example:

ILM

FILM

FILVM

..

..

Now I need to cluster (nearest neighbour method) these peptides based on sequence identity..

Please suggest any tool to do clustering..

Thanks in advance..

If it is just the matter of sequence identity, uclust/cd-hit would probably be the best. If you want to take into account biochemical properties of amino acids used, there are some more sophisticated tools out there, namely: MUSI and the Gibbs sampling tool (IMHO better than MUSI) and also Hammock (there is also a Galaxy version of it), which is suitable especially for very large datasets.
